‘Nickelodeon All-Star brawl’ is adding the Monday-hating Garfield

And he’s voiced by Chris Pratt! Ha, gotcha, unless…?

The lazy lasagne-loving cat Garfield is coming to Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl very soon.

Available for free tomorrow (December 9), Garfield comes to the Super Smash Brosinspired fighter as a playable character. As the rights to Garfield were acquired by Viacom in 2019 – Nickelodeon’s parent company – you can now see the orange cat fend off the likes of Aang, Ren & Stimpy, and Spongebob Squarepants.

A new character was announced to be coming to Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl on December 3, to which developer Thaddeus Crews tweeted “huh. I wonder who that’s for” in reference the Garfield meme, essentially giving the game away.

Garfield will be available for free on Xbox, PlayStation and Steam versions of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl on December 9, but the Nintendo Switch version of the character is slated for later in December.

Back before the game released Joel Nyström, CEO of Ludosity, said: “Nickelodeon is absolutely on board with having the game be competitively viable.

“Shortly after the success of Slap City, we were approached by Nickelodeon, at first I didn’t think it was for real. You get a lot of weird emails and deals on a weekly basis, so at first I dismissed it as spam!”

In other news, Destiny 2 has added a slew of Halo-themed weapons to celebrate developer Bungie’s 30th anniversary. The weapons include the Magnum, Battle Rifle, Energy Sword, and Focus Rifle, although some of them are loo kingly slightly different to befit the Destiny lore it seems.

Elsewhere, Halo Infinite launches today, but there’s a lot of confusion surrounding when the game launches, and when player can start downloading the game. So we compiled a list showing prospective players how to make the process as easy as possible.
